Rex Tillerson, Donald Trump's pick for Secretary of State, apparently lied under oath during his confirmation hearing when he was asked if he or Exxon Mobile had ever directly lobbied against sanctions imposed on Russia. Tillerson responded that he has "never lobbied against sanctions [on Russia]," and that "[t]o my knowledge, Exxon never directly lobbied against sanctions.” Committee chairman Sen. Bob Corker interrupted Tillerson and reminded him that "you called me at the time [Russia sanctions were being debated]."
